Make a Difference

Jun 2nd, 2015 by admin

Many people can remember a person that made a big difference in their life. What about you? A teacher, a relative, a man who became a father-like figure or perhaps it was one who simply loved you when you felt unlovable. Whoever it was…that person made a difference in your life. They showed you genuine compassion and friendship. They showed you the love of Christ in them and through them. It may have been the key turning point in your life! Jude 22 reminds you of the truth you received, “And of some have compassion, making a difference.” What difference are you now making in the lives of others? Are you getting involved in mentoring relationships to help others draw nigh to Christ? Titus 2 clearly calls the older to teach the younger. II Timothy 2:2 pointedly persuades, “…the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” You may feel it is you to whom someone must reach; however, you will find the greater blessing is in doing the reaching yourself. Be warned: this type of relationship is not passive. It is active – you must choose it! How active are you in the mentoring opportunities that surround you? There are young believers, struggling believers, children, elderly, and your own family needing the genuine compassion of Jesus demonstrated to them. This will require time, effort, and most of all ability from the Lord. The believer must choose such an investment to receive the eternal profit. What will you choose today?  Start with a step of victory and come to church this Sunday…I’ll be looking for you!

Living one step at a time,

God's Holiness
"For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."
Isaiah 57:15

What is your relationship with God like?

Andrew Murray: "Let it be your business every day, in the secrecy of the inner chamber, to meet the holy God. You will be repaid for the trouble it may cost you. The reward will be sure and rich."

Charles Spurgeon: "I believe the holier a man becomes, the more he mourns over the unholiness which remains in him."

A. W. Tozer: "A Pharisee is hard on others and easy on himself, but a spiritual man is easy on others and hard on himself."
